Town (6/14)



  1. Moody Brews to open after the first of the year at Pettaway Square. https://youtu.be/VjzrOOzehuY Pettaway Square is under construction now at 21st and Rock.
  2. It has been announced that Spirit is developing a a new crew base in Houston(IAH) for 150 pilots and 300 flight attendants. I wonder if Spirit will begin service to LIT sometimes in the near future? This would be good for people wanting to take advantage of Spirit's expanding service to Mexico and the Caribbean.
  3. I don't know about the location of the new bus station but the property was sold a year ago to the City of NLR and Greyhound had a year to fine a new home and that time is up.
  4. Look for the former Greyhound Bus Station to be demolished in the next few weeks. There is talk the property will be sold for the development of a highrise hotel. Nabholz plans a mixed use project for the propery with a resturant and an entertainment venue on the ground floor and residential and/or a hotel above.
  5. Another development for Argenta is in the planning stage. Nabholz Property of Conway has put in a offer to purchase property owned by the city located just west or Simmons Bank Arena. The property now serves as a parking lot bounded by the walkway from Main St on the north, the arena on the east, East Washington on the south and Poplar on the west. Although details are vague at this time a hotel might be included in the project.
  6. A 360 unit resort style apartment development has been announced for Rockwater Village. It will be located on property bounded by Rockwater Blvd. to the north, Pike Ave. on the east, River Rd. on the south and Parker on the west. It will be called Shoreline at Rockwater.
  7. Thoughts about development. The park could be divided into sections and naming rights could be could be sold to help cover the cost of development. An example could be The UnderCrossing for the land located under I-30, The Simmons Bank Plaza or The Terrace at Simmons Bank and The Lawn for the section between the library campus on the north and Arkansas Capital Commerce Center and 300 Third Tower on the south. Each section of the park could interconnect but with a different theme.
  8. Land on which a future park will be constructed after the I-30/2nd Street ramp has been fully removed.
  9. The Census Bureau has released information for the 2020 census. Looks like Arkansas' totals were under counted by over 5%. If this is correct then the count for Conway would have been closer to the estimate than the count.
  10. More good new for the East Village. The Heifer International complex is being sold although Heifer International will consolidate to the top two floors. The building will also become home to the Lyon College Institute of Health Sciences. Lyon will develop Arkansas' first dental and veterinary schools at this location.
  11. The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra announced plans today to build a new headquarters on the grounds of Heifer International. The Stella Boyle Smith Music Center will include the following according to the ASO: a Grand Hall for rehearsals and concerts, multiple on-site practice spaces, state-of-the-art music classrooms, a dedicated streaming studio to serve students across the state, climate-controlled instrument storage, and additional flexible space to serve future generations of Arkansans.
  12. Arkansas Business is reporting that the old Cathead's Diner in the Paint Factory will be replaced by a food-hall restaurant to be called Sterling Market. It will be owned by the owner of Fidel & Co, which is across the street. The new operation will include a butcher shop, pizza option, a bakery, greens/sandwich station as well as a bar and a grab and go area.
  13. Demolition on a church complex located on Harkrider one block south of Oak. First Community Bank is planning to construct a building on the block to serve as their primary Conway location.
